Order Your Flowers for Easter Sunday

We are taking orders now for potted geraniums that will be placed along the walkway to the church on Easter Sunday morning. The flowers will vary in color and are $18.50 each.  Don't dilly-dally because we have ordered a limited amount and they will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.  Make your purchase this Sunday at the church or call or email Jackie Tinkler, Ministries Assistant, 969-1236. If you purchase a geranium, you may take it with you after the 11am service on Easter Sunday.  Checks should be made to the church.

2015 Deacon Family Ministry Assignments

The assignments are complete.  Each member family of the church has a deacon.  The purpose of the deacons is to serve the congregation and support the ministries of the church.  Do you know who your deacon is? 

Save your Stuff!

As Spring begins to arrive and we begin to go through our annual cleaning rituals, please don’t get rid of those things just yet.  The youth will have their second annual Youth Fundraiser Yard Sale on Saturday, May 2.  We need your stuff.  Last year the sale was a great success and raised more money than we ever have in any fundraiser.  So when you get the itch to clean-out, don’t scratch it just yet.  Save it for us to sell and raise money for our summer activities. NOTE:  We'll begin collecting items for the sale after Easter!
